TAFE SA, the Department for Industry and Skills and Brand South Australia invite you to an informative event that celebrates the valuable skills apprentices and trainees can bring, the contribution they can make to your business, and how your organisation could be a few clicks away from hosting one.

Join the Hon. David Pisoni MP, Minister for Industry and Skills who will speak about the Government’s commitment to invest $100 million to create 20,800 apprenticeships and traineeships over four years, with a further $103 million provided by the Australian Government under the Skilling Australians Fund National Partnership Agreement.

  • Laura Pivovaroff, 2017 Apprentice of the Year and Jeweller at Wishart Jewellers

To close, a panel of industry business leaders will share their personal experiences taking on apprentices and trainees, and how it has further enhanced and enriched their business, and the process and ease in which it was done. Panelists include:

  • Datacom, Libby Ewing-Jarvie, Head of Business Services
  • SA Power Networks, Angela Coker, Manager Learning and Development
  • REDARC Technologies, Dr. David Murfett, Engineering Manager
